The membership rolls list many "Civilians" such as Ropes and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge alongside veterans such as General William T. Sherman, General Joshua L. Chamberlain, Lieutenant General James Longstreet, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Gustavus V. Fox, Admiral George Dewey, and General George C. Marshall to name a few.
